Tonight, the black capes, guitars, a pianist and an amazing Choir made me fly to Portugal … I was very moved, of course…. It was an unforgettable evening. Certainly, because of the “fado”. Certainly, because of what and how I felt. But especially because, with East Timor going through such a hard crisis, a well known ensemble came sing in Timor. It shows true courage and generosity to perform, two, three times a day, for all kinds of audiences, Timorese as well as foreign." — Ângela Carrascalão, Dili, February 2007
